About Me

My photo
i moved where my heart had drifted off to long before. i live on a hill of hundred acres, where my dreams have merged with the view. it is quiet from machine noises yet loud with sounds of horses, dogs, cats chickens and ducks. nature is the true artist in resident and i am just her apprentice who often gets lost in her gaze. once and a while i travel back to cities and foreign places to put into photographs what i have learned, yet always, part of my heart is left on the hill..

I fell asleep in the hammock till the rain came


I am not a sleeper, it is something that has been difficult for me since childhood. Last night a half dozen people told me about the rain  that was coming on Saturday "it is going to rain all day". As I opened the door early this morning there was no rain waiting on the other side i whispered" sophie no rain yet"I spent the morning getting away from the rain -hard to describe what i mean perhaps taking advantage ....but at some point I lay in the hammock, swinging back and forth under the cloudy sky.  It did rain I know this because an answer to a wish, I had fallen  asleep in the hammock, till the rain drops gently came down and woke me up, only a few drops just for a minute. When I woke i realized that I had been dreaming about peace, world peace.

I started to think about my dream, although the details of the dream itself is unclear to me at this time.  the feelings have lingered creating many more questions. One question i have is-what does peace cost? now please don't mistake the question for what has been the cost of peace? okay what I mean is can we buy it or fund it? is their enough people that want it and if their is, which i believe their is, why can't we create it like a space station or find it like a cure. What happens if peace can be achieved by finding a cure for people who don't want it? what if we funded a team of "specialists" to create peace -how long would it take? You see I am having trouble understanding how come we don't want it bad  enough, but more trouble understanding why genetically we can't discover the gene that doesn't?-for me to think of anything genetically- you know the wheels are turning.

I obviously don't know the answer to this because if I did, I would have brought it to reality, but I wanted to put in my two cents.

I don't think peace can be funded Nadia. That's what the UN was supposed to be, a funded world peace keeper, but it has not succeeded. I think that as long as humankind does not know how to live in the Now or in harmony with nature, it will never achieve peace.

i am torn about this issue myself...

Sad as it is, I think that war is an integral part of human nature. We must need it, somehow. Genetically speaking.
